Distances

The historic city of Lagos, set around 15 minutes drive from Casa Roma, has become known as the cultural capital of the Algarve. From here Portuguese explorers set out on voyages to the coast of Africa & it still has something of a swashbuckling air. It's rivermouth fortress and medieval walls hold a warren of narrow cobbled streets full of shops, cafes and restaurants that fill in summer nights with diners & a bar-hopping crowd. Few places can match the atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a fabulous week. The Villa was amazing and we enjoyed living the millionaire lifestyle for a week.

Our grown up children enjoyed the nightlife in Lagos and we all enjoyed the beaches at Salema. The food at the Boia Bar was fabulous and the views of the beach breathtaking.

All in all a fabulous family holiday

Lovely, spacious villa.

  • 5 of 5

Our family holiday was the last week of June this year. I knew before we arrived it was going to be bigger than needed for four adults and a four year old, but having all of the space made the stay extra special. The villa is well laid out with different areas to congregate or sit quietly and read a book, the balcony off the dining room was super, a great place to have breakfast and a BBQ at dinner, with a truly beautiful view. Carma the Housekeeper is a lovely lady and couldn't have been more helpful during our stay and she and her sister keep the villa extremely clean and tidy.

Impressive villa in great location..

  • 5 of 5

Situated in the heart of the San Antonio golf course this villa is equipped to a high standard.it is ideally suited to family groups, we had 8 people in our party,there is room for everyone to have their own space.

You can swim,not just dip, in the pool and there are inflatables there so don't try and pack your own!

Great BBQ area and a separate smaller gas BBQ.

TVs, sauna,table tennis,books,great Wifi,games you name it it's there.

A 5 minute drive takes you to Salema, a sleepy seaside town with a good mix of bars and restaurants,one of which is top drawer. You are away from the over commercialised centres of Villamoura and Albefura.We played some golf,course is better than most on the Algarve condition wise,though a little mountain goatish!

Great weather helped make it a great holiday for our family and friend. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Dear Philip, thank you for taking the time to write this review of your stay at Casa Roma. We are very pleased that your enjoyed your stay and felt that the Villa was very well equipped. The golf course was designed by Pepe Gancedo, who believed in laying a course over the existing landscape rather than changing the landscape for the course. This makes for an interesting and challenging golf experience. Glad you found our recommended restaurant in Salema. Wendy and I hope we can welcome you and your family back to Casa Roma on another occasion.

Lovely Villa in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the resort a number of times before but this was our first stay at this villa. The villa was very well appointed with everything you could ask for. The upstairs terrace gives panoramic views of the golf course and the ocean beyond. The pool is larger than average with a separate jacuzzi with full sun most of the day. The villa also has a separate cinema room and games room which the kids really enjoyed. Overall a fantastic villa and a fantastic holiday.

Great Villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our staying at this villa couldn't be better!

The villa itself is very well furnished with all the appliances a large group would need – on top of that it is beautifully decorated through all the house.

This was a Christmas away trip, we were a 7 people group (3 children and 4 adults) in total but on Christmas evening and Christmas day there was 11 people on the table and the space available was more than enough.

Although it was late December, we have been lucky and we managed to enjoy some meals in the balcony overlooking the hills. The views from the Villa are amazing as it is situated on a high place inside a high standard Golf complex.

Everybody enjoy the hot tub and the most courageous even swim a bit in the beautiful pool! There was also plenty of entertainment inside the house like table tennis, books, DVD, table games, etc.

The location is perfect for someone that wants to be away from noisy places – it is situated on a “Natural reserve” area and therefore construction is not as wild as on the eastern Algarve. We took less than an hour from Faro airport as there are new high ways nearby and access is easy. You will find plenty of beaches and interesting places to visit – the nearest beach is about 5m away– the Alentejo region is also close by. There is plenty of information on the villa about places you can visit and activities you can do.

Carmo, the house keeper was very kind and always helpful when needed.

We already have plans to come again!

We highly recommend it!

Paradise in Portugal

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly fantastic villa! We stayed there with friends and had an absolutely wonderful week. You start your morning on the big balcony (the one with the awning), having breakfast with a beautiful view on the surrounding golf course and, on some days, the sea. Then you go to the pool, later enjoying the outside jacuzzi, finshing with a sauna session and a barbecue (there is one with gaz and one with coal). The rooms are spacious and everything is very clean, the kitchen has everything you possibly need (including 5 French presses :). On some days, we had a hard time leaving to go to the sea since we enjoyed "our villa" so much. There is good wifi, too, and the housekeeper is very nice and responsive. Don't bring towels etc, it's all there and they also replace them every couple of days. This place is a gem, I would absolutely go there again!

Owner's Response: Hi there Tobias K and friends, We are delighted that you and your friends enjoyed our villa so much. You seemed to have found a great holiday routine. Thank you for taking the trouble to write the review it's always good to get feedback as it allows us to make sure we keep the Villa, up to standard, but it's particularly rewarding to get a review like this. As I write we are staying at the Vila now. The sky is blue the sea is visible .................and the decorators are preparing it for next season. You and your friends are welcome back anytime. Many thanks Nick and Wendy Parker

Perfect for family or groups.

  • 5 of 5

Great place a for a relaxing (or active) family holiday. Eight of us (ranging in age from 17 to 81) stayed here for a week. It was perfect. Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and great facilities (heated pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, games room, large dining room or terrace areas to eat, lovely living room with English-language TV on the rare occasions that we watched it. Very comfortable bedrooms with enough bathrooms for everyone. Carmo (the home manager) was very helpful on the rare occasions that we needed anything. We visited nearby Lagos and Salema (some very good restaurants - 'Agua na Boca' in Salema is definitely worth a visit). The villa is located on the Santo Antonio Resort (formerly know as Parque da Floresta) with golf, spa, tennis, bowls and many other facilities - none of which we used because the villa was so good. In summary; perfect for a family holiday (but a week just isn't long enough).
